-american communities. i am struck by this speech. if mitt romney gets criticized for going to the naacp and using the word obamacare why isn't barack obama criticized for a southern accent. if we are going to talk about pandering. this to me, you are watching somebody who we all know the president doesn't speak like that. she pandering and no one is talking about it. >> we have talked about it a lot on this show how when barack obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that
of the first time they heard romney talk at any length. his convention speech wasn't that well viewed. they didn't watch the republican primary debate. he is introducing himself to enormous number of people, enormous number of it will deciders. undecided and swingable independents. if he comes out presidential and goes on the offense with obama there is potential for a lot of upside for him. >> bret: we all have pollitis watching polls. but there is a new one today. the "wall street journal"/nbc poll puts the race at 4% for president obama. vi% for governor romney. if you look at the real clear politics average of polls, this is roughly about that from september 25 to octobe october 2. if you go to the "wall street journal" poll about the economy, approval, how is president obama doing handling the economy? vi% approve. 51% disapprove. brit, while right track/wrong track is narrowing there is still real negative numbers in the polls for president obama. >> well, for romney to have a chance, there better be. because that is the issue that is central. he had been gaining ground on the i
charged speech in virginia is distraction and accusing allies of romney of spreading the tape to the media. the romney come pain denies having -- campaign denies having any part in it. it surfaced last night on daily caller.com and thin ran on "hannity." the speech was open to the press in hampton university in june of 2007. we covered that speech on "special report" with brit hume. ran a sound bite from senator obama on his concern about the federal response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now
the speech of 2007, june of that year? >> i've got to tell you, mitt romney's allies in a desperate attempt to change the subject from a video in which mitt romney wrote off half of the american people, are circulating a video that was covered by the campaign press core at tha corp. and in it the president talks about what happens in inner city communities when people have given up hope. i don't -- bill: do you think this is prom no's fault? >> i certainly think that his allies thought that this would be helpful. i've got to tell you if the romney campaign thinks this is what americans are looking for tonight in place of plans for the middle dallas they are in for a surprise. bill: you may the speech is no big deal then. >> i don't think that anybody thinks that the government's response to karina was sufficient. governor romney himself called it an embarrassment. this is something that the president spoke about on the senate floor in front of the press corps at that time. he took action to improve disaster relief in the united states senate. so i think this is a desperate attempt to change
will see him repeat that mistake. lou: the romney campaign says they will not bring up the 2007 speech want you think of their choice? >> it is interesting. the two different arguments obama uses we cannot be divisive to make an incendiary comments. but to look at the mainstream media types that say we were there and it makes you wonder about their judgment how did they cover it but not cover some much rhetoric? that is a harsh criticism to make for our like to think if i cover the speech at that time that would not only be in my story but it is significant to say that. >> you question the news judgment i question the ideological judgment. it is lacking and we will go things that happened in the speech but the one element we will discuss tonight as if list send to candidate obama not even two weeks since he voted in the united states senate against the waiver of the act for new orleans i doubt we'll ever see such a clear case of such cynical opportunism by any candidate certainly not from any officeholder. thank you. we'll have more on the debate coming up. >> whereas obama's cabinet been h

the spontaneous moments. am i right or am i wrong? >> yes, of course. i think most people in a speech have a one-liner, so to speak. they wait for the right time to use the one-liner. you never know when it'll come up. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptance speech to do so. is this a question of simply restating the arguments he's already made for larger audience, or does he have to take this debate in a new place, in a new direction? >> i think the debate is really the game changer for governor romney. he needs to do very well. i think he will do very well. and it's all in how he communicates his message. i think he will do a better job than he has in the last two years of communicating that message. >> what makes you say that? i'm curious about the -- >> we know he's capable of it. he took it to newt gingrich, the best debater. >> let me finish my point. then you're welcome to -- for two years he's been trying to hone this message at a time when i think as a big surpris

him as a president. >> has he? >> no he has not. >> why not? >> his convention speech he has run a personality campaign and nobody is going to out personality barack obama. >> for romney to just breakthrough what looks like an increasing race in which he has fewer chances to change the dynamics. obama has to just not make it and he wins. this is a tough situation for a challenger particularly on the first debate. the pressure is on domestic policy. and so this is in some ways the most important hour left in the race. >> would you agree with that? this is mitt romney's moment? >> he has to breakthrough. the problem is for him is that if obama does well and romney does well then it is the status quo and the status quo favors obama. >> you don't think it is a little bizarre that we put so much weight into an hour and a half where they are delivering prepared lines? we have a build up to the campaign and then we turn and say we have an hour and a half. >> it is an hour and a half unfiltered. we get lies in 30 second ads. we get lies -- >> step up. >> they have been preparing to deliv
this wrapped up for romney and pennsylvania. guest: i know that was part of the debate. there is a video circulating of a piece of the speech where he seems to be making that statement. that certainly is something that civil rights organizations 0.2 as proof -- point to that the debate is more than voter fraud. it is about what happens in november. when the pennsylvania decision broke a few days ago, i attempted to contact the gentleman and was not able to reach him. i know that was considered kind of like a smoking gun to people on one side of the debate as proof it was about more than just voter i.d.. host: church bill, new york, independent line, good morning. caller: good morning, my question is one of consistency. i take a voting rights very seriously. just as i take gun rights very seriously. do the same people who support not having to show i.d. to vote also support not showing idea to purchase a gun? they're both constitutional rights. aren't these people being disenfranchised if they have to show i.d. to purchase a gun? the same groups that support no voter i.d., are they on the
's right, george. the speech was covered five years ago. though, not part of the remarks when then-senator obama ad-libbed. conserves are calling it explosive. the obama campaign is calling it a desperate attempt by romney's allies to change the subject. speaking to the largely african-american hampton university ministers conference in june 2007, then-senator obama went off his prepared remarks. using a different speaking style than usual, obama charged new orleans, post-hurricane katrina, was supposed to get disaster from the stafford fund. a requirement waived for other disaster victims. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. >> reporter: same with hurricane andrew in florida, he said. but -- >> what's happening down in new orleans? there's your dollars? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow, the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: beyond the accuracy
